The Art of Illustrated Maps

art-of-illustrated-maps The Scituate Mariner has a profile of local resident John Roman, an illustrator whose book, The Art of Illustrated Maps, came out from HOW Design Books last fall. If “illustrated maps” sounds redundant to you, Roman means by it maps that are illustrations, maps that are conceptual rather than geographic—art rather than geometry.
